As motherhood takes her on an exciting and new journey, the dynamic of the relationship with her partner might well change. Although most parents shift their focus solely to their children, they need to continue spending quality time together like they used to. With that in mind, let’s help Mum and Dad rekindle their relationship with a bit of time just the two of them. And while it is all about Mum on Mother’s Day, there's no reason why Mum and Dad can't celebrate together and create even more memories of the special day!

Looking after household chores while caring for a baby 24/7 might feel overwhelming for new mums.

By doing a cooking class together, they’ll learn so many new tips and tricks for cooking up fantastic restaurant-worthy meals. Their confidence will grow and they’ll both feel empowered to cook more recipes from scratch, without feeling like there’s no time to do so.
